The GMC Acadia Denali 2019 is a mid-size crossover with three rows of seats.
The car looks good, has good proportions and shape, and doesn’t seem too big. The design is clearly one of the main advantages of the car. The new body has large dimensions and a huge number of different parts that give the car such a formidable appearance.
A little aggression in the appearance of the car adds a body kit filled with a long air intake strip. The rear of the car was also a success for the designers. A little space is taken up by the luggage compartment window, which climbs strongly on the profile. Next are the marker lights, turned to each other. The upper part of them here plays the role of stop signals. As befits a large American SUV, you can find a lot of chrome parts here.
Everything has been done in the car’s interior to provide passengers with the highest level of comfort. The seats look good and the rear ones are very comfortable, but it took me a long time to find a good driving position. The interior is also good, nice style, good design, but the materials seem slightly cheap for a crossover. I liked the look of the dashboard and unpolished wood trim.
There isn’t much space in the far back, other than for small children or the occasional short ride for adults, but there’s plenty of space in the middle row. The front seat is comfortable, and the heated seats help. Otherwise, the interior looks somewhat upscale with leather and lots of soft-touch surfaces. GMC uses quality materials for Acadia, and its fit and finish are acceptable.
With seats in the third row, the 2019 GMC Acadia has a limited cargo area of just 12.8 cubic feet. When the seats are folded, the maximum capacity increases to 79 cubic feet.
As for the buttons and adjustments, everything is where it should be and there are also smooth rotary sound controls and radio. I liked the minimal number of knobs and buttons, which made it easy to deal with the radio and climate control. However, the console is very high and limits the space for the elbows.
When driving on bad roads, it is quite good, and the large wheels allow you to completely not worry about stones or large potholes. And when I drove over a particularly long stretch of gravel, nothing rattled or made any noise.
Now to the dynamics. The throttle response is good. This crossover quickly starts moving, and the V6 gives enough traction, which is necessary when the third row is filled. Six speeds sounds a bit outdated, but in reality the transmission is mostly smooth and quiet.
The GMC Acadia 2019 will allow you to feel confident and safe when driving on busy streets and highways. The Acadia borders on sportiness in terms of its appearance, but the ride quality is more towards comfort.
